Jean Taylor’s life was blissifully ordinary. Nice house, nice husband. Glen was all she’d ever wanted her prince charming. But then everything changed.


The newspapers found a new name for Glen MONSTER, they shrieked. Jean was married to a man accused of the unimaginable. And as the years ticked by, with no sign of the little girl he had been accused of taking, thier lives were constantly splashed across the front pages.


But now Glen is dead and she’s alone for the first time, free to tell her story on her own terms.

Jean Taylor is going to tell us what she knows.


Calling all crime fans you have just got to read The Widow by Fiona Barton. It is an urgent must buy, must read. I can guarantee ever reader that once you open this book you will not be able to close it. Jean Taylor had a loving husband or a heartless killer? she’s know, wouldn’t she? Jean’s husband has been accused of taking a little girl. Kate a reporter wants the story, but she doesn’t really want to know about Jean does she? Kate wants to know the truth about Jean’s husband Glen. The Widow, The Reporter, The Detective and The Mother of the missing child each have their own chapters. The story is a dark tale of a terrible crime, a stifling marriage, and the lies spouses tell not just to each other, but to themselves.


Fiona Barton trains and works with journalist all over the world. Previously, she was a senior writer at the Daily Mail, news editor at the Daily Telegraph, and chief reporter at the Mail on Sunday. As Jean Barton was covering notorious crimes and trials, she found her self wondering what the wives of those accused really knew – or allowed themselves to know. I am really pleased for Fiona that The Widow is available now in the UK, and around the world in the coming months. Great news Fiona Barton is currently working on a second book and I will definitely be buying it.

All though Fiona has been a reporter it doesn’t mean that it is any easier to write to novel. A writer has to have a good story line, making readers glued to every page, with characters that readers want to not only just like, but think that they possible just might know that character. This is exactly the fabulous energy that Fiona Barton gives in The Widow from start to finish.
